Contact Lenses For Your Wedding Day

When you are preparing to get married, whether you are the bride or the groom, chances are you will spend a good deal of time worrying about your appearance. There is nothing wrong with this at all, of course – your wedding is an extremely important day in your life, and there are a number of reasons that you will want to look your best. To begin with, you will want to look nice for your significant other as the two of you embark upon your married life together. Additionally, you will have friends and family present, and all eyes will be on you! But perhaps most importantly, you will want to look as nice as possible because you will have photographers present, and you’ll have wedding photos to look back on for the rest of your life.

Once you actually set about deciding how you will look on your wedding day – how you’ll wear your hair, what your suit or dress will look like, etc. – most of the recommendations you will find will be relatively standard. You will spend time picking out the right outfit, and people will help you with the smaller details. But how can you go about addressing some of the smaller things to really add that extra touch to your wedding day appearance? One thing to consider might be switching from glasses to contact lenses for your wedding, if you are used to corrective vision.

My wife wears glasses to read and watch television and I personally wear contacts pretty much 24/7 . When it came time for our own wedding last year Jessie wanted to ditch the glasses and walk up the aisle without the glasses on. Of course, there is nothing wrong with wearing glasses on your wedding day, particularly if you are accustomed to wearing them every day. In that sort of case, you may well look less like yourself without glasses on. However, if glasses are an occasional accessory for you, or if you only wear some form of corrective vision some of the time, there are numerous reasons that contact lenses could be considered preferable on your wedding day. Here are a few factors to consider:

    • Camera Flash – Cameras will be flashing constantly during and after your wedding, and if you have eyeglasses on, the flash can reflect off of your lenses in photographs. With contact lenses, you allow yourself to see clearly but still avoid this sort of issue.
    • Flexibility – Most weddings involve a great deal of movement, from constant head turning to speak to different people, to dancing, etc. With contact lenses you can be unhindered in your movements and expressions throughout your wedding day.
    • Definition – Finally, you can also consider different ways to use contact lenses to actually accent your appearance. For example, Acuvue contacts come in “Define” lenses that can work to emphasize the natural beauty and colour of your eyes. Something like these lenses, or even a pair of coloured contacts, may actually help you with your wedding style!

Of course this post wouldnt be complete without a little shameless plug from my own wedding last year, great pictures from the wonderful and talented Emily Mislak, check out her makeup work as well as top photography on her website.
